Renée has over twenty years of experience coaching athletes of all levels and abilities. Outside of figure skating, Renée is an avid hockey fan and enjoys working with hockey players and teams to improve their skating abilities.
When not on the ice, or in the car driving from one rink to another, Renée enjoys running, yoga, going to the beach and spending time with her family. She is a mother of two and loves to spend time with them when they come home between semesters.
Bachelor of Business Administration, Bryant University
My passion for teaching skating is brought forth with a lot of positive energy, discipline, organization, education, and definitely a lot of fun. If a child isn’t enjoying their time at the rink then they won’t want to be there. I give my best effort to teach them in a positive manner, in a safe environment, all the while developing the skills to become an athlete to their fullest potential.
I firmly believe that developing an athlete directly relates to developing and shaping the human being. An exceptional coach not only teaches skating lessons but teaches life lessons along the way. Nothing brings me more joy than when my skaters continue to the next chapter of their lives confident, fulfilled and full of fond memories from their time on the ice. That is when I know I have done my job as both a successful coach and a mentor.
